Tell this to the marketing/sales or the technical staff at Intel.Optane doesn't have powerloss protection, because it doesn't need it!
Indeed. But they also have a vested interest in having enterprise customers pay a premium for the feature. See more below.Tell this to the marketing/sales or the technical staff at Intel.
One of them does not believe and confirm.
Based on the technology (no need to erase whole blocks / do garbage collection / keep block pointer tables updated), the window of time between when the host sends data to the SLOG and when the SLOG commits it to persistent storage will be quite a bit shorter than for traditional flash. With redundant power supplies (920SQ) and a 6KW UPS, I don't think there is much risk in my application. If I were a company handling people's banking records I'd buy the enterprise version, though. But for what I'm doing, the 280GB 900P (SSDPED1D280GASX) is just fine.But "King of Slog" must care about availability and relation of price vs performance.
